Scaling HTTP-based apps in Kubernetes using KEDA-HTTP

KEDA provides a reliable and well tested solution to scaling your workloads based on external events. The project supports a wide variety of scalers - sources of these events, in other words. These scalers are systems that produce precisely measurable events via an API.  In this show, we'll introduce KEDA-HTTP, which provides HTTP-based scaling into the KEDA core, using simple, isolated components and an opinionated way to put them together.
